"A Field of Grass," set to songs of Harry Nilsson, defines an era much in the same way as Taylor's "Company B" and "Black Tuesday." The time is the '60s.
A quintessential Taylor dance, it again boasted Patrick Corbin, that sweetest and most quintessential of Taylor dancers. There he is at the start, in lotus position, smoking Mother Nature's best and swaying to Nilsson's cover of the Beatles' "Mother Nature's Son".
The rest of the dance is sometimes disturbing. But the "The Puppy Song" is full of smiles. And Corbin is the embodiment of the American spirit: a loner, wounded in high-flying ensembles, charmed and abandoned by others, emerging unscathed through every tough turn and leap, back in the lotus position and flashing a big smile. Happiness, Taylor tells us, is possible after all.
